AVT Announces Agreement with X-Rite for Certification of Its SpectraLab II Color Measurement System 

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

SpectraLab II, AVT's Latest In-line Spectral Measurement Solution Certified as Meeting X-Rite’s Exclusive XRGA Standard 

Hod-Hasharon, Israel – AVT, a world leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, is proud to announce a licensing agreement with color technology specialist X-Rite.  The new partnership certifies that AVT’s SpectraLab II Color Measurement System, a world leading inline solution with tens of installations worldwide, is compliant with X-Rite’s XRGA Standard.  Forward going, AVT will be offering an XRGA certification for its SpectraLab solutions.

Developed as an ISO-compliant metrology standard for the graphic arts industry, the XRGA standard utilizes both advances in color science and new international standards to reduce color measurement discrepancies, and to optimize color measurement across multivendor color networks.

Working in a production environment with multiple departments or different sites, the problem of color inconsistency is well known. Often, this inconsistency is a direct result of using different devices to monitor color.  SpectraLab II, which was introduced at DRUPA 2016 for the first time, is AVT’s latest generation of in-line spectral measurement for nearly any application – including various label substrates, paper, cartons, and transparent flexible packaging.  The solution’s standardized design is widely compatible with typical industry devices, including X-Rite’s handheld monitoring instruments.

SpectraLab II offers in-line continuous color measurements at high speeds, and shows color results and trends throughout runs.  Providing advanced color workflow management and exemplary inline-to-offline measurement correlation, SpectraLab II features enhanced color reporting capabilities including real-time alerts to third-party reporting systems when colors shift out of tolerance.  The system allows for seamless connectivity to existing workflows and color databases, and eliminates the need for press stops and manual measurements.  

“X-Rite’s highly respected XRGA standard provides an invaluable third-party endorsement to printers considering AVT’s SpectraLab II advanced color measurement system,” said Alan Then, General Manager, Color Solutions.  “Solutions that meet X-Rite’s rigorous requirements are rewarded with the prestige its XRGA Standard instantly communicates to customers.”

“As a market’s leading and most comprehensive color management solutions provider, X-Rite is pleased to add AVT’s outstanding SpectraLab II solution to our recommended technology offerings,” said Chris Winczewski, VP Product Marketing for X-Rite.
